Create an inventory of installed and active applications, agents, and operating systems and their versions.
OT Environment Hygiene Challenges
Lacking a complete, continuous and enriched asset inventory makes maintaining good OT environment hygiene challenging.
Today, many security teams rely on CMDBs when searching for asset information. But without an asset management platform CMDB information is often incomplete and out of date.
Traditional Active Discovery is Intrusive and Disruptive
OT environments require complete non-intrusive discovery, using active and passive scanning without dangerous commands to the network.
Traditional active scanning provides only a snapshot of hardware information for OT devices, can interrupt operations and lead to unplanned downtime if not implemented properly using the intended mechanism by OT vendors
Technical Debt and Legacy Software
Technical debt and legacy software pose significant dangers within Operational Technology (OT) environments, which encompass industrial control systems, SCADA systems, and other critical infrastructure.
These dangers can have profound consequences on operational efficiency, security, and overall system stability.
Validate the implementation of your existing Security Controls such as EDR and vulnerability scanners and identify gaps in deployment.
Find Unprotected Assets, Identify CVEs and Take Action
Gap analysis plays a crucial role in cybersecurity by identifying vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and discrepancies within an organization’s security measures. Armis Centrix™ enables you to compare an organization’s current cybersecurity posture to industry best practices, regulatory requirements, and internal security standards.
Gap analysis and threat management identifies whether current security controls are appropriately deployed, functional, and configured correctly (e.g. EDR agents, Active Directory). It also indicates compromise and attacks including unusual communications between OT devices, communications between the IT and OT networks, and communications to and from external networks. Finally, gap analysis and threat management also identifies EOL / EOS operating systems for improved risk and lifecycle planning.

Enable Risk Remediation Efforts With a Complete Contextual Asset Inventory
The rise in unmanaged assets has led to a serious increase in security risk and breaches. A real-time overview of your critical infrastructure and identification of gaps is a great way to mitigate these risks.
A complete asset inventory is the cornerstone of effective and secure operations in OT environments. It provides the information needed for risk assessment, security, compliance, incident response, and overall operational resilience. Without an accurate inventory, organizations risk operational disruptions, security breaches, and regulatory non-compliance.
With a complete and reliable asset inventory you can meet the Zero Trust challenge with a single, authoritative source of truth for all organizational assets.
